Longbrook Barn, Milton Abbot

The barn lies in a relatively isolated position but within comfortable walking distance of Milton Abbot and closely located to Milton Green. 

The concept for the conversion of the building is to avoid any physical alterations as far as it is possible compatible with the change of use.  The proposal is to leave the walling, the roof and the granite columns exactly as they are, to infill the apertures that have been formed possibly as a late agricultural alteration in one of the gables and to introduce the glazing against the front and rear walls in a position where it is set back behind the granite columns to avoid any intrusion on the visual presence of the existing building.
